I use Lacerte. My client has rental properties (the only QBI activity) that we are qualifying as a QBI activity, aggregated. The properties have a net loss for 2018 as well as some suspended losses carried to 2018. Lacerte is calculating and allowing a QBI deduction for this activity.
It doesn’t seem correct to me but Lacerte claims their calculation is correct.
this morning i contacted their support lines regarding the error the IRS just announced relating to applying the incorrect tax against capital gains – the IRS had been using the 25% and 28% rates against capital gains – Lacerte personnel had no idea, nor had anyone within Lacerte figured that out in the beginning in issuing their software.
